I’m experimenting with Optimo nowadays and trying to achieve a task I planned months ago from this thread. My plan is to set an adjacency study for the cubicles in an office.
I tried Vikram’s graph before and there, rooms are organized according to the area and adjacency rates they have. In my case, I need cubicles to have a distance between them by the adjacency requirements I define in an Excel file.
So what I basically am trying to do is to find the optimal layout with the cubicles whom adjacency relation is produced by MS Project/Excel.
Adjacency Rates.xlsx (9.8 KB)
Then I created dimensional properties for these cubicles which are arbitrary numbers: Cubicle List.xlsx (8.9 KB)
I first created cubicles and placed them on random coordinate points.
Then, I created a set of rules in a custom node which determines the distances between the cubicles(fitness function) and this fitness function is connected to the nodes of Optimo which should create a loop that will eventually let the system propose a new layout for me. This is my initial thought but I couldn’t make it work.
Very interesting, unfortunately I don’t have time to go through all of your stuff, I just thought you might find it easier to manage your input parameters (fitness function) if you did something like in this thread?
I’m super sorry for my late response but I was far from all of my electronic devices in the meantime. You are right that I should simplify the graph. But data is more accessible for me when it looks like a spirograph :))
But I gave another chance to this graph today with a different attempt. I simplified the process by just 3 cuboids. I couldn’t do it, yet it looks super simple so maybe someone can help me with that. In this basic example, I want to have 3 cuboids located randomly according to the rule of being close together.
It warns me in the yellow bubble as:
Warning: NSGA_II.AssignFitnessFuncResults operation failed.
Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Do you know what might have caused this?
